The United Nations in the News: Making Your Classroom a United Nations Information Centre. An Approach for All Grade Levels.
This guide is to help students become more aware of the wide variety of United Nations' (UN) activities taking place in the world; to give students an interest in the affairs of the UN; and to lay the foundations for continuing interest in the UN. In this activity students read articles of recent world events in which the UN has been involved, then follow up with discussion and writing activities. A reference list of UN organizations and conferences for further activities is included. Students are instructed to read newspaper articles that are attached and to make lists using the headings: What?, Where?, When?, Why?, Results, and Questions. Once the lists are completed students are instructed to answer the following questions: (1) What was in these articles that you already knew? (2) What three things most interested you? (3) What three things most surprised you? and (4) What three things do you need more information about to make sense of them? (EH)
